obama and members of congress. i can tell you, alex, i have been talking to our local affiliate in mississippi who says that his home, dutschke's home, was searched by investigators on tuesday and wednesday of this week. so this arrest comes after that. now, of course, if you will recall, this past tuesday prosecutors dropped charges against elvis impersonator paul kevin curtis. they thought he was behind the letters. he declared his innocence along, and so this past tuesday they did drop the charges against him. now, just for some background, alex, this all relates to those ricin-laced letters that were addressed to president obama and to a republican of mississippi, senator roger wicker. those letters were intercepted though. they were intercepted at off-site mail facilities. so to be very clear, they never got close to their intended targets, but given the timing of this, this happened just really a few days after the boston bombing, it certainly added to the heightened anxiety and alert here in the nation's capital. so at this point in time there is another person in custody

the people that live here more than ever before. >> let's talk about the possible use of chemical weapons because president obama has called the use of such weapons a red line and that is a quote. but the president also says he still needs more proof. what exactly is he looking for? >> well, he is certainly looking for something that would address with some degree of certainty that these weapons were used and that they were used by bashar al assad forces and by bashar al ass assad's forces deliberately. one of the things that the obama administration has been saying is that they are not sure whether or not some of the chemical agents might be released by accident within the ranks of the syrian military, whether or not there is a break in the chain of custody and whether or not some of the weapons may have fallen into other hands. they want to be certain that it was bashar al assad's force whose used the weapons deliberately. right now the obama administration is not fully sure that that is the case. the syrian government is saying that it would never use these kinds of weapons against civ
